My name is Natalie, and I am an author from Kentucky. I grew up in the small town of Salyersville on a farm. I still live here in Eastern Kentucky and have written two books! Before I started writing, I actually worked as a translator and am fluent in both French and Spanish.

What inspired you to author this book?

What inspired me to write this book was literally being in the hardest point in my life. My fiancé had died, and I had already written one book, but there was still something, more specifically someone, who was missing from my life. I began looking for love again, thinking that I’d be single for the rest of my life. Fortunately, that wasn’t the case, and I did find love again. This book is my testimony of great loss and restoration. Hopefully, my story will give other people hope that there is light at the end of the tunnel, no matter what situation they’re in.

Where did you get the inspiration for your book’s cover?

I wanted something bright and sunny to fit the theme of the book, so one night I went to sleep, and I dreamed of the perfect book cover. It was bright and yellow, so I knew that was definitely what the cover of my book needed to be.

Who has been the most significant influence on you personally and as a writer?

Honestly, the greatest influence I had was my late fiancé. He encouraged me to write even before he died. He influenced me so much on so many things, and for that, I am forever grateful.

What were your struggles or obstacles you had to overcome to get this book written?

I had so many obstacles to overcome to get this book written. I dealt with everything from people trying to stop my career to my own mental health, but I did overcome them, and I have completed my book! I like to think that those trails made me stronger.

Tell your readers about your book.

My book isn’t just my personal love story. It describes how I met my boyfriend two years after losing my fiancé in the most unexpected way possible. I also describe battles with faith, slander, with a little bit of a crime theme to it as well.

Who is your target audience, and why?

My target audience is anyone who likes a good love story as well as anyone who wants to hear a story that overall makes you feel good and lifts your mood.

What do you consider your greatest success in life?

My greatest success in this life thus far has definitely been this book. I have put my blood sweat and tears into this, and it took well over a year to write.

What one unique thing sets you apart from other writers in your genre?

I think one thing that sets me apart from other writers is that I openly describe and talk about what I’ve been through. My goal is not just to tell a story, but to help someone as well.
